Deliveries of oil products from CLH facilities to the Spanish market decreased by 3.8% in March 2019
Deliveries of oil products from CLH Group facilities to the Spanish market during March exceeded 3.3 million cubic metres, 3.8% less than in the same period of the previous year after correction of the seasonal effect.
The comparison with the same month last year partially reflects the calendar effect of Easter holidays, which last year took place in March. So the decline in demand during this month could be mitigated in April for this same effect.
Analysed by product type, deliveries of gasolines increased by 3.2% and automotive diesel dropped off 4.2%. Deliveries of automotive fuels decreased by 2.8% and almost reached 2.3 million cubic metres.
Regarding the total for diesel fuels (automotive + off road + heating oil), deliveries almost reached 2.4 million cubic metres, 6.6% less than in the same period of 2018.
Lastly, deliveries of kerosenes exceeded 500.000 cubic metres, representing an increase of 4.6% compared March of last year.
This information is included in the preview of oil product output to the Spanish market, which the CLH Group publishes on its website every month.
